Gare Montparnasse is located in Paris' 15th district, near the center. The Louvre is only at a 15-minute walking distance. It's the point of departure for the TGV Atlantique, with destinations such as Tours, Bordeaux, Rennes and Nantes. There's nothing left of the old station from 1840. In the sixties of the last century, the building was replaced by a modern station with offices.
